I am actively pushing the inclusion of books that are available from the Open Library. They will be by authors who are already known to Wikidata and the books will have either an ISBN or an identifier from for instance the Library of Congress.

The point to this is that we do not know if readable books are available from Wikisource. Consequently Wikisource becomes of less relevance to the Open Library because they DO make it known and knowable what books are available for readers.

Hi all,

For information, the WikidataCon is this week-end in Berlin. While there is no talk nominatively around Wikisource, there is some intervention on relation subjects (inventaire.io, WikiCite, German National Library, FRBR, and so on).

The event is sold out, but you can follow remotely some of the presentation (link will be added here : https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikidataCon_2017/Program/Remote ).

I'll be there and I'll be happy to talk about Wikisource, who else will be there?

Cdlt, ~nicolas
